Format: Hardcover
This anthology collect some of the most recent work on the "ethics of belief" today. Topics in this book include:
1. Whether we have voluntary control over what we believe.
2. Whether the issue of voluntary control is relevant to epistemic justification.
3. And the relationship between issues 1 and 2 to the analysis of knowledge.
I've only read the first 11 articles, so take this review as a review of those.
In my view, the best written and thorough articles are also the least insightful, and the most insightful points occur in articles that are primarily written about something else. That is, the most interesting points occur in papers whose theses I find less interesting. Nonetheless, if you are working in the ethics of belief, are interested in whether justification amounts to whether you should or shouldn't believe things, the issue of "internalism versus externalism" about justification, or whether we have voluntary control over some of our beliefs, many of these articles are must reads.
I couldn't imagine why a lay reader who is interested in philosophy would ever want to buy this book. This is a book for people writing scholarly papers and theses in a very specific area of philosophy.
